BUJU BANTON - ULTIMATE COLLECTION
BUJU BANTON - ULTIMATE COLLECTION Almost single-handedly Buju Banton changed the face of Jamaican dancehall from the sex and gun imagery of the 1980s to the return-to-roots and Rasta direction that dominates again today, bringing with him a slew of contemporaries like Capleton and new young dj’s such as Anthony B and Sizzla. His rough and tumble vocal style, like Howlin’ Wolf on acid, cuts through contemporary riddims like a lightning bolt through a dark sky. Musical integrity, showmanship and innovation have been the hallmarks of his career, especially in his work for producer Donovan Germain from the late ’90s to the present. Live and on record he continues to excite and to present black culture, especially in it’s uniquely Caribbean form, in a positive light that society at large has often denied it.
Originally known as Mark Myrie, the name he did his earliest recording under, he was influenced by the dancehall dj’s of his youth including Burro Banton whose stage name he partly “borrowed” to create his own. In Jamaica “banton” is the word for storyteller, and with Buju’s success the word was given a new life as dozens of younger dj’s influenced by Buju’s style and success, made it part of their own stage name. Today the name “Banton” is as popular among dj’s as “Ranks” was during Shabba’s reign.
